>Watermelon watermelon.

Friday, September 4th, 2009


Our watermelon harvest exceeded our greatest hopes! We’ve really made up after the great watermelon tragedy of last summer. We got about 22 out this week and still have about 8 yet to be picked. The smaller one’s weren’t much to write home about, but the large ones were red, sweet and of course juicy! Thus the “writing home about” them.

Lily helped load them up in the back of our vehicle to make a few deliveries around town.

The “squashermelon”!

See! Yum!

Here’s what we got this week. Potato and eggplant from a member of our church, the pepper and tomato are ours. Yum!

Phil joined Lily for a dip in the pool. He just loves to splash in the water!

Clara is such a sweet and content baby. She often blesses us with little smiles. I almost caught one here.

Our strawberry patch has done pretty well. Next year we should get a good harvest!

Grandma’s touch!

Lily showed Grandpa how she can rock in the chair he made for her.

Verna made some new crib sheets and a bumper pad for Phil’s cradle. It looks very nice in the nursery and with Clara in it.

We finally got our garden in last week. We put in onions (some red ones this time!), lettuce, spinach, jalapenos, red and green peppers, cilantro, rosemary, strawberries, watermelon and of course sweet corn. The gentleman who loans us this garden space passed away a couple months ago and his son is letting us continue to use it this year which we’re grateful for, but unfortunately they’ve cut off the water from the house. Phil isn’t too worried about it but will have to think about how to get water over there. Maybe it will rain everyday this summer!
I won’t be much help in the garden this time I’m afraid, but I do have a few things growing here at the house, some herbs and a red trailing verbena.
